Championing sector development,
accelerating Abu Dhabi's growth

ADQ was established to create further value and future proof Abu Dhabi’s economy. It brings together some of city’s most dynamic, transformational and ambitious enterprises through direct and indirect investments across key sectors of the emirate's economy.

Our shareholder, the government of Abu Dhabi, entrusts us to develop ADQ as a national champion that will create long-term shareholder value and accelerate sustainable economic growth for future generations.

Each portfolio company has created a strong foundation in the economy, in society and, in many cases, in markets beyond the UAE. However, by bringing together key entities representing such a wide range of strategic sectors within a single holding structure, we have the opportunity to achieve even greater contributions.

Our active investment approach enables our portfolio companies to operate as effectively and efficiently as possible by implementing best commercial practice and value-driven initiatives. We work with the leadership of these companies to provide them with insights across the entire spectrum of our companies and across clusters and ecosystems, sharing combined expertise in a variety of ways to capitalize on economic and commercial opportunities.

As a holding company, we can cultivate an even greater level of innovation and ambition than what already existed in our individual companies, further contributing to Abu Dhabi. Each day we are working hard with our companies' leadership teams to ensure capital is being deployed efficiently, management structures are appropriate to meet business strategies, and projects that identify synergies of most value to Abu Dhabi are prioritised.

Looking ahead, we recognise that sustainable investing is imperative for a sustainable future. This means we are embedding Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles across our portfolio companies to build long-term growth and value for our society and the environment. Everything we do, from our day-to-day business practices and processes to our entire investment cycle, will consider ESG factors that will create a positive impact and make a difference in the communities in which we operate.
